On the 16th of May, theocratic Turkish president Erdogan showed up at
the White House for an official visit with Trump on the subject of
terrorism. Outside, supporters of the Kurdish YPG fighters who have nearly defeated Daesh(ISIS) in Kurdish territory protested, reminding
all that Erdogan is widely believed in Kurdistan to be aiding ISIS under
the table. Supporters of the Turkish theocrat counterprotested-and
someone in the police gave them the space closer to the White House
before cops decided to close both the street and half of the park.
The park was closed first, even though the Erdogan supporters in the street were the side closest to the White House. A portion of the park further back either stayed open or was reopened, but at first cops were demanding everyone move all the way back to H st.
